Usage[edit]

This template expands a name to link to the appropriate DLR station article, without displaying "DLR station".

The template can be abbreviated as {{dlr}} (for Docklands Light Railway station).

For example:

{{DLRstation|Poplar}} expands to [[Poplar DLR station|Poplar]].

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the station that serves it. In railway articles it is generally preferred to use the station unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Poplar serves the neighbourhood of Poplar.

Almost all Docklands Light Railway stations follow the link form of terminating with "DLR station".
